Install an internet booster if you encounter issues with your devices in an area that is dead. These devices are simple to use and set up, and help boost WiFi signals to provide faster speeds. You’ll need an WiFi router to plug it into an outlet for power to connect it to and the direction you want it to be pointed. Some boosters also have additional features, for instance, the USB port to charge your wireless devices.
How to Install an Signal Booster
A WiFi booster, also known as a range extender, is a simple device that is easy to use and connects to your router wirelessly and is able to be used wherever you have an internet connection. It rebroadcasts the signal from your router to a different location which allows you to connect to the network in your backyard or in your basement. Place it halfway between your router and the area in which you lose the signal, and point it in that direction.
It is important to note that while a booster increases internet speed, the speed offered by your internet provider is not increased. This is because the speed you pay for is derived from your broadband service and is not based on how far you are from WiFi signals.
Water can also affect wireless signal fidelity. A fountain, an aquarium, or even a coffee cup can decrease your signal. You can prevent this from happening by keeping your WiFi booster and wireless signal amplifiers out of the reach of water sources.
